Hydraulic fracturing is a proven technology that has been refined over 60 years.  It has allowed companies to safely produce natural gas from more than one million U.S. wells, and now it is being used to extract oil and other liquids from shale formations, such as in the Niobrara play.  The State of Colorado has been regulating drilling activity since 1951.  Every aspect is overseen by the COGCC.  Over 90 percent of wells in Colorado are hydraulically fractured.  The essential factor with respect to the safety of hydraulic fracturing is proper well construction, including casing and cementing to isolate the production formations being stimulated from shallow groundwater aquifers.
